At ABI, we look for people with an idea they want to develop into a business. You need no prior entrepreneurial experience, as we will be developing both you and your idea.
ABI is one of Sweden's leading business incubators, which means you gain access to a vast network — both domestically and internationally — as well as guidance and effective methods of ideation and business development, and support for building your team.
First, you will join our ABI Accelerator, where you — in a series of workshops together with others — spend a few months developing your business, meet with prospective customers and partners, explore and plan your funding options and what your team should look like. We do this 3-4 times a year in different cities.
Second, when you are ready to start your company, you can join the ABI Incubator, and we will mentor you individually for up to 2 years and provide you with everything you need — from developing your business model and getting in touch with customers, venture capitalists and investors — to building your team and developing yourself through our various programs and events.

Everything so that your company will have access to the right skills at the right time.
Patents & Permits
Laws and regulations? Patents? Source code?
You do not need to know everything — we will help you understand how you can protect your idea and how to conduct yourself with regards to laws and regulations, as well as any patents and licenses. All so that you can maximize your output and get it right from the start.
If they can’t find you, you don’t exist.
We will help you develop your brand and an effective marketing strategy, with everything from business cards and a website to advertising and social media management. Together we design and market your product or service so that your customers will want to use it.
Work wherever you are.
We offer you and your company access to office spaces in functional and creative environments, both in the communities where we operate — Luleå, Skellefteå, Piteå and Kiruna — and other places around the world. We give you access to a variety of networks where you can meet other creatives and committed people who are on the same journey as you are.
